All Visual Arts are proud to present their first solo show by British artist Reece Jones. Staged across the 5000 square foot warehouse in Kings Cross, Control Test is the largest presentation of Jones’s work ever made in London.
Jones creates charcoal drawings on an unusually large scale. Essentially process based, his landscapes and locations are developed by an application of layers which are then systematically eroded using glass papers.
The title of the exhibition comes from an introduction of the motif of a ‘blank’ rectilinear screen into the work. This negative space is seen to inhabit a series of shifting landscapes. A ‘constant’ or ‘control’ element against which these ever changing topographies are measured, the screens are also post modern monuments, light sources and formal devices - whose characteristics dictate the composition and resonance of the works.
